Peripheral manufacturer Razer expands its portfolio of add-on devices designed specifically for Sony’s current-gen console PlayStation 5. With the Razer Kaira Pro and Kaira, they announced two new headsets that rely on the Razer HyperSense vibration technology. The DualSense controllers can also be charged quickly and easily in the Razer Quick Charging Stand.
Razer Kaira Pro & Kaira: New gaming headsets for PS5
The Razer Kaira Pro Dual Wireless Headset with Haptics unleashes supreme immersion on consoles. It’s Razer’s first wireless headset for the PlayStation 5 with Razer HyperSense, a smart haptic technology that provides lifelike, touch-sensitive feedback based on audio signals.
The Razer Kaira Pro also has the tried-and-true Razer TriForce Titanium 50 mm drivers on board for an optimal sound experience, while the light weight offers long-lasting comfort. Both features were already fully convincing in our test of the Razer Kraken V3 HyperSense, which won our Gold Award.
Wireless connection via Bluetooth or dongle
In-game communication is done via the detachable Razer HyperClear supercardioid microphone. The Razer Kaira Pro is designed to accurately pick up voice while filtering out background noise for better voice quality. The wireless headset features a built-in microphone for mobile use.
Smartphone users quickly and easily connect the Kaira Pro via Bluetooth, while PS5, PS4, PC, and other devices with a USB-C or USB-A port can connect via the included 2.4GHz USB-C Razer HyperSpeed dongle. A USB-A adapter is also included in the box.
Razer Kaira at a lower price
The Razer Kaira for Playstation 5 turns out to be significantly cheaper. The Kaira Dual Wireless Headset can optionally also be operated via Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz network, and thanks to Razer SmartSwitch, it is possible to switch back and forth between the devices at any time.
The TriForce drivers with a diameter of 50 mm are also used here, but Razer HyperSense and Razer Chroma RGB lighting are not included compared to the Pro model.
Razer Quick Charging Stand
Razer also announced its Quick Charging Stands today. The charging stands match the color scheme of the futuristically designed PS5 DualSense wireless controllers. The Razer Quick Charging Stand charges the controller in under three hours, promising minimal breaks between gaming sessions. The charging stand is available in white, black and red.
